A former Utah attorney general was found not guilty on Thursday of bribery and corruption charges after he was accused in a pay-to-play graft scandal, media said.

Republican John Swallow was acquitted of eight felony charges and a misdemeanor, ranging from receiving or soliciting a bribe to obstructing justice in a Salt Lake City courtroom, ending a 15-day trial, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Swallow cried and held up his hands when Judge Elizabeth Hruby-Mills read the verdicts in the packed courtroom before dismissing the jury of five men and three women, the Deseret News in Salt Lake City said.
